Student videos

We have an outstanding reputation for both teaching and research, and students who choose Nottingham have the unique opportunity of being able to explore the broadest range of areas of English. 

Impact of the Coronavirus on work placements and volunteering

We work with a range of organisations to provide work placements and volunteer opportunities. As you'll appreciate they are all disrupted by the Coronavirus pandemic.

We expect opportunities to run as usual from the academic year 2021/22 but this cannot be guaranteed. We will do our best to arrange suitable activities as previous students always tell us how much they appreciate these opportunities.
